    IMO the elite AI is really too hard especially on Chenghou!
    Like said above, the AI is too fast! it's a bit like Mario kart: the AI cheats to be competitive. I HATE this method!
    The ships' capacities are not respected: take a Goteki and everyone will thrust better than you, take an Icaras and you'll be overtaken in straight line!
    Moreover, the AI taking a hit (rockets for ex) doesn't slow down as much as a player would, which is very frustrating. Yes, FRUSTRATING is the word, as in Mario Kart!
    Also, in a good "hard mode" I think a GOOD player should be able to win almost any race, which is, IMO,not the case here. The amount of luck needed is too important.
    As a consequence, the "arcade perfect" trophy is gonna be a tough one to get.

    the thing thats dissapointing is that the elite AI is set so high that it comes down to luck with weapons, on TOP of taking great racing lines that lets you beat it. Well at least thats how it seems to me as I was lucky with Chengou, I got a couple of quakes at the starting lap which let me overtake early and breakaway!

    oh YES it's insane. I really hope it's just because we started last thursday. I'm really afraid to begin a phantom race in the meldown grid now, after all the hours already spent to get all the elite gold before... I've clearly the feeling the AI is cheating to spare time in a lap, guns are the unique chance to get the lead... Hope to laugh about that thread in 6 months!

    ColdRem's, I was thinking about the same thing for the ship capacities. They are really not respected. I know how you feel, but keep practising guys and eventually the luck/skill balance will be, well, more balanced.

Autopilots really become valuable then, when you activate them you are somehow a lot faster than racing the same line yourself. Something's not perfectly straight here...
    Agreed. I've seen this on many occasions. I'm thinking maybe its my pitch? but it turns out it wasn't. it still did the same thing for some weird reason.

    This is great news! I am not alone...
    Raced Chenghou last night with Elite opponents. A lot of swearing was involved I can tell you, until the 20th try or something. I finally got that gold medal but man!, you really have to take all speed pads, all possible barrel rolls plus a couple of turbos to make it! Once, I was second place in the last corner with a quake. Guess who got pissed off when I accidentally absorbed it! This game just might be to much for me to handle...

    Just raced the Elite AI again on Chenghou while going for the Elite Campaign Master Trophy. It does honestly seem to me that the game determines before the start of the race whether it is possible for you to win or not. I had an excellent race, hitting every speed pad, barrel rolling wherever I could, even a couple of turbos thrown in. I finished 6th with absolutely no hope of catching anyone in front of me. I then had another go, putting in nearly the same race time, and won.

    Logic defies me...
